Green Your Good Deed: Get Kids Outdoors

Winter sport The tradition of giving is a fundamental part of the holiday season, even in cash-strapped times. This week we'll offer ways to get more green mileage from your generosity.

Tip #4: Play in the Snow

Give the kids in your life (and yourself) a healthy, stress-reducing gift by planning a day of winter fun: Build a snow fort, take a nature walk (fresh snow is a great place to spot animal tracks), or participate in cold-weather sports (Sierra magazine has a few suggestions). Don't have children? Volunteer with a local charity to teach young people about the outdoors or donate a coat to a winter clothing drive.

Share your tips: How do you share your favorite cold-weather activities?
The Green Life will take a holiday break starting on Dec. 24, but we'll be back with new posts on Jan. 2. In the meantime, peruse our archives for a wealth of green-living tips.
